Review: These knives are still keen

By Joanne Savage

This Japanese all-female rock-pop trio had their Belfast audience shaking it out to kooky songs about ramen noodles, hot chocolate and banana chips.

Happy-clappy, weird lyrics set to bass, punk drums, distortion and head banging shouldn't work, but it so does.

Despite the language barrier, Shonen Knife united with the audience in the sheer abandon of moshing.

A strange yet fabulous night.
